Start! for Chrome
Access your favourite parts of the internet with the Start! extension for Chrome

Start! is a an extension for Chrome that provides you with an all new start page. As well as housing links to your favourite web sites for easy access, the start page also displays news feeds and can be customised with a background image of your choice. Start! makes it quick and easy to get to the sites you need as well as keeping up to date with all of the latest news and blog posts.

The upper portion of the Start! page is home to your favourite web sites, while a bar in the lower half is used to house web apps you may have opted to install. The news feed section can be used to display information from news web sites and blogs but you can also use a variety of online services to consolidate a number of feeds into one

The background image of the page can be customised by click the Change Background link at the bottom of the page and this will pull in images that have been uploaded to Flickr. You can also use the URL link to choose a specific image of your own online.

Once set up, you can use Start! in a couple of ways. The first option is to use it as your start page so it will appear every time you launch Chrome, but you can also add it to a pinned tab. This means that your start page is always available no matter how many other tabs you have open.

Verdict:

Start! is a nice idea but it can get messy when a large selection of bookmarks are added.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
